Product Description

The Second Vatican Council accomplished the most important reform of the Church's liturgy ever taken, while at the same time profoundly respecting its great tradition. The Council wanted to restore the great flow of the Church's liturgical tradition. DAYS OF THE LORD is an excellent guide for understanding the riches of the Church's liturgy. The commentaries, written by several different authors, go beyond the obvious meaning of the texts. They allow the texts to speak for themselves. It is the liturgy that enlivens Christian existence and transforms it. This book can be used as a tool to aid people to enter into the mystery of Christ and its unfolding in our time.

Publisher's Description

Days of the Lord is an excellent guide to the riches of the Church's liturgy, and a welcome companion to the Sacramentary, the Liturgy of the Hours, and the Lectionary.

First published in Belgium, this outstanding seven volume series will enable all Christians to enter into the mystery of the liturgical year, to pray with understanding, to proclaim the beauty and wealth of the liturgy.

More than a thorough commentary on the readings, more even than a reflection on the liturgical seasons, this series comprehends the totality of the liturgical year-that vehicle developed by the Church to express, summarize, and present "the whole mystery of Christ," the mystery that we are called to profess and celebrate every day.

Since this mystery belongs to all Christians, the writers of this series have written their reflections with the average reader in mind. Yet the knowledge and insight that they bring to this work make it invaluable even to those who are themselves well versed students of the liturgical calendar. Readers will come away not only with a greater understanding of the liturgical year, its structure and meaning, but with a deepened appreciation of the prayer life the liturgical year provides through its structure.

Editorial Reviews

Week after week, the homilist might well reach first for this book. Here is a superabundance of in-depth commentary on each of the season's readings. Fresh insights into the readings for the day will likely give the homilist a new direction for his own thoughts and reflections."
Church

These books are highly recommended for parish libraries, for those who exercise the ministries of reading and preaching at the liturgy, pastoral liturgy teams and all who are involved with the preparation and celebration of the Eucharist.
The Way

Here is an example of the finest scriptural and liturgical scholarship that European Benedictines can offer. Preachers who have a fondness for the history of the development of feasts and seasons will relish this work.
Church

. . . an excellent work and one which will certainly stand the test of time.
Doctrine and Life

. . . an essential resource for liturgy planners . . .
Theological Book Review

What Pius Parsch's classic The Church's Year of Grace meant to pre-Vatican II Catholics, this splendid commentary in seven volumes will mean to Catholics today and for many years to come.
Prairie Messenger

. . . will touch readers in many ways as they learn to approach the mystery of Christ.
The Canadian Catholic Review

. . . a helpful guide to those preparing liturgies, homilies and classes in the months to come.
